Blurb: Out of the Cage: Moving on can be painful, especially when it’s what you need, but don’t want.

Vampire Nikolai Kuznetsov enjoys his life of blood drinking and torture. The first he must do to continue living, and the second he does for the safety of his family. He loves his blades, wielding them with elegant precision. At his brothers’ urging, Nikolai attends a poker night…just to do something that they deem as normal. Finding himself drawn to the blood of a mild-mannered, somewhat reclusive wolf shifter is the last thing Nikolai expects.

Except, Parker Jones walks away without giving the slightest indication the he feels the same pull…other than his aroused scent, of course. Nikolai studies Parker, trying to figure out why the shifter would ignore the pull between them. He discovers the wolf shifter is still mourning his long deceased human lover. Tenderness and understanding aren’t in Nikolai’s nature.

Can Nikolai find another way to connect with his beloved?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Nikolai is a vampire and a killer. He kills to protect those that he calls family. He is ruthless, sometimes cold, loves his blades and torture. He doesn’t really have a gentle side, but he must find it. He has found his beloved and his beloved is a shifter who lost someone close to him. To get past his guards, he must tread lightly but also learn patience.

Parker had spent over thirty years with a human whom he loved deeply. He had passed away over ten years ago and Parker is still grieving. Now he has found a mate that is not like anyone he knows. It is going to take some time to get use to the man, but when Nikolai is injured well let’s just say things heat up real fast.

When Charlie Richards puts out a book I am usually there to eat it up. I would definitely recommend reading this book.

Blurb: Sometimes you have to get over bad memories to create new ones.

Trevor has known who his mate was for years, but he’s so painfully shy and insecure that the most he’s done to woo him has been leaving him cupcakes on his porch. He knows he’s going to lose him if he doesn’t finally make a move, though, and with a not so gentle push from two of his friends, he calls Micah.

Micah is still dealing with bad memories from his shifter ex-boyfriend, and he’s glad when he meets Trevor. Trevor looks unassuming and sweet, and Micah is thrilled, until he finds out Trevor is just like his ex. He runs, thinking he’ll never see Trevor again.

Family and friends conspire to get Trevor and Micah together, and it works, until Micah discovers his father has been hiding a secret that could put Trevor and the entire pride in danger.

Will Micah and Trevor’s fragile relationship survive, or will the past push them apart?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Whitedell Pride collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. In fact with this particular series I would start with the first book but also it crisscross with Gillham Pack. But, every title can be enjoyed as a standalone.

I have read many books over the years paranormal and contemporary/ I have loved many series and authors. However over time I start to lose interest in them whether it is from the change in writings to the wait time for a book from a certain series. Now Catherine has many books in this series and in Gillham Pack series and I have to admit that this is one author who has kept my attention with her work over time.

Trevor has known who his mate was for some time, but he has this bad case of being shy to approach Micah. So his cute little leopard butt leaves the human cupcakes. Micah lives with his father and has finally found out who is behind the cupcake deal.

It looks all good till Micah finds out that Trevor is a shifter. It would seem Micah doesn’t really have any good memories of shifters so it is going to take Trevor a bit of patience to get him to see that they are perfect for each other. Now if you have read these series you can guarantee Nysys and Keenan will be helping him out. It also seems like dad has been keeping some secrets of his own.

I always get a kick out of these stories and cannot wait till the next one comes out. They are the perfect length for me and I absolutely love these guys. This story rocked, but then I had no doubt that it wouldn’t. Trust me you guys have got to read these books.

by

Monika De Giorgi

Facing your fears, inner demons, friendship and a love to dream of.

Jesse meets a wonderful guy who is caring, attentive, lovable, and handsome to boot. Unfortunately, the only time he sees Cameron is in his dreams—dreams that are never flimsy and fast forgotten in the morning, but feel very real. And the longer they go on, the more palpable they feel to Jesse.

But what happens when these dreams have a bigger and bigger impact on Jesse’s daily life? When they begin to take a toll on him and make it harder to wake up every day? And what if they turn into nightmares and Jesse can’t get out anymore, if he never wakes up?

One day Cameron finds a heartbreaking poem in a small notebook, hidden in a used book. From the first time he reads it, the handwritten words resonate somewhere deep within him and when he goes to sleep that night, he meets Jesse for the first time—a sad young man who makes Cam want to give him reasons to smile and a shoulder to cry on. From that night on, Jesse is a nightly visitor in Cameron’s dreams.

But what happens when Cameron finds out that his Jesse is very much real? And what if a sinister presence takes hold of their shared dreams and Cameron wakes up? Can he get back to Jesse? Or will Jesse stay back forever in this dreamscape turned nightmare?

Jaxon’s life has been in upheaval since he’s defied his Alpha and risked his life to rescue a shifter held captive by his herd. Luckily, the deer shifter has found shelter with a pride of cats. Jaxon is overjoyed when he scents his mate in Beta Alan’s home, even if his mate’s gender takes him by surprise.

Too bad Jaxon’s past soon catches up with him. His ex-Alpha kidnaps Xander, the Wildcat Hills Pride’s leader, in order to get his hands on Jaxon.

Between rescue missions, new friends, a dubious ambassador for the shifter Council, and Viggo’s erratic behavior, Jaxon wonders if he and Viggo will ever have a chance at a relationship.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Wildcat Hills Pride collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. But, it is by no means necessary.

Viggo has always wanted a mate, but he had never expected his mate to be a guy. He is having a difficult time getting over the fact that Jaxon was his mate. So imagine his surprise when he got home from work to find out. To top it top it off Jaxon’s herd wanted him back, so they kidnapped Viggo’s Alpha to get it done.

Jaxon was pretty much the same as Viggo, except he had a bit more time to get use to the idea. He also wanted Viggo no matter what. And his damn ex-Alpha kidnaps Xander to get him back. They both will protect each other with everything in them, now if only they could get to the claiming.

I absolutely adored the crazy nurse that refuses to go home. This story was a blast and I had so much fun reading it.  I think Liza Kay is going to be a new favorite author for me.

Going Up the Inside by Catherine L. Byrne

ISBN:  978-1-4874-0742-1

Product Link: http://www.extasybooks.com/catherine-l-byrne/going-up-the-inside/

Reviewer: Prime

Review:  Going up the Inside is the second book in Catherine L Byrne’s series Racing Rivals. Much like the first book the writing style was brilliant and drew me in immediately, I also happened to like the world that Byrne had created in the first book that I had looked forward and binge read this one.

In saying that, you need to have read book one before reading this one, but that is not a bad thing. However, I have to say that I really loved Going up the Inside so much more than the first book. We got so much more feeling, angst and drama that were just a joy to read and engaged my emotions so much more.

Javier and Glen are ready to start another year of the racing season, but things are changing, the racing league they are part of is merging with another which is adding pressure on everyone. It doesn’t help that the newbies are all rough and ready as well as homophobic. In their personal lives they are trying to get their lives together and for me this was the highlight of the story.

Every relationship has issues and Javier and Glen’s is about to get tested. In the stress of coping with fans mobbing Javier’s apartment, they need to move to a quiet and more secure area. That is the start of their troubles.

It was easy to relate to both guys – Javier throwing himself into work so that he could make his arsehole father proud and Glen, feeling left out of Javier’s life despite living together, finds himself on a different path. I loved this storyline and I am not ashamed to admit that I may have shed a few tears on Glen’s behalf. He may still be the hot-headed Englishman but his character has become so much more in this story.

Fans of the first book will not be disappointed with this one. But once more this is a story about rivals who have fallen in love. But there is so much more sweetness and actual relationship woes going on. I really do want to hear more from these guys because I just love them all the more since reading Going up the Inside!

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating:  ♥♥♥♥♥4.5 Hearts

Blurb: Beneath the Deep: From the sea, mysterious things can arise.

Wayne needed a place to hide when an angry ex-boyfriend sends questionable pictures to several board members at the school where he teaches. Substituting as a lighthouse keeper for his buddy’s father, he finds stark beauty in how the waves crash on the rocks and solace in their sound.

His buddy, Easton, drops by with pizza and wine to buoy his spirits and together they find a naked man on the beach. Bringing the injured man inside his temporary home, Wayne learns the stranger’s name is Zarek, and he doesn’t want to be taken to the hospital. Against his better judgment, maybe because the sexy, black-haired man kissed like a God, Wayne agrees…even though he knows the man’s story is bogus.

When Wayne learns the truth, can he wrap his mind around everything and accept his new reality? Or will he wipe his hands of the sexy Zarek at his earliest opportunity?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Wayne needed a place to hide and to heal from what had happened back home. His ex sent pictures of them having sex to his boss, and now the school had to make a decision on whether he could stay teaching or not. So for now he was watching over the lighthouse for his best friend’s father. He had just not expected to find a naked man on the beach. A naked man who was not all the way human, what a shocker.

Zarek was behind the movement of being allowed to hang around the humans, several hundred years of not being allowed to. However someone is out to get him, and now he has to hide out. Although finding his mate was a plus to his hiding out.

Charlie has given us a new series that is slightly different than her previous ones and I am loving it. Although I wish that they were a bit longer with more to it, this was a pretty damn good start.

It did come off a bit rushed to me however it doesn’t take away from the story itself. I loved how there is some humor mixed in with a serious tone to it. It had caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I had fun reading it and would definitely recommend it.

Delivered to Hope by A.J. Marcus and Caitlin Ricci

51tFMihc4PL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Title: Delivered to Hope

Series:  Signed, Sealed, Delivered # 3

Author: A.J. Marcus, Caitlin Ricci

Genre: Erotic Romance/ Paranormal/ Shapeshifter

Length: 84 pages

Publisher: Extasy Books (May 15th, 2016)

Heat Level: Explicit

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥3 Hearts

Blurb: Morris intends to stay in his arranged mating for a month, but his new mate has other ideas.

Since he was seventeen, Morris has been working as an escort for Critters on Call. It was the best way for him to get away from his abusive father, but going all over the world for his clients has kept him away from his brother who hasn’t been the same since the last beating their father gave him.

His brother, Jeremy, is in one of the best care centers in the world. But that level of care is expensive, and their uncle, who is in charge of paying for Jeremy’s bills, has come for Morris. For years he was allowed to live his life with the knowledge that Jeremy was being taken care of, but now unless Morris agrees to an arranged mating to an elk in Washington, and pretends to be a virgin on top of it all, their uncle is threatening to move Jeremy out of the care center and into somewhere horrible.

Harrison isn’t sure why the African shifters are seeking mates within the Washington elk herd, and he doesn’t much care, either. All he wants is to make his family happy, and that means being mated to an elephant he’s never met. Having his own modified version of virginity has always been fine with him, up until he realizes that being with Morris for the first time could have been great. But Morris is nothing like he expected either, and once they get the initial awkwardness out of the way, Harrison is excited to spend his life with his new mate.

But Morris has other plans. The deal he made with his uncle was to be mated for a month, and he’s counting down the days. Then control over Jeremy’s life will transfer to him and they can finally be free of their family’s abuse.

It would have been a good plan, too, and one he could have lived with, if his past as an escort hadn’t come back at the worst possible time.

ISBN: 978-1-4874-0704-9

Product Link: http://www.extasybooks.com/delivered-to-hope/

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the third book in the Signed, Sealed and Delivered series.

Morris is an escort, I call it being a prostitute, making money to pay for his brother’s care after his abusive father beat him. His uncle demands he mate an elephant shifter or else face the consequences. On top of that his past won’t leave him alone.

I really liked that Morris was determined to do whatever it took to care for his brother even though I didn’t care for what he had to do. His father and uncle left a lot to be desired as I couldn’t stand either of them.

Harrison wants Morris and will stop at nothing to have him as his.

It was an o.k. read.

Genre: Paranormal/ Shape-shifter

Length: 121 pages

Publisher: Extasy Books (May 15, 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts

Blurb: Mal isn’t the only human in the Gillham Pack, but he is the only unmated one. He knows most members view him as an outsider for that, but he has his friends, and it’s enough for him. That’s what he tries to convince himself of anyway.

Will still isn’t over Heath, even though his ex-boyfriend mated with Jayden nine months ago. It’s not only the fact that Heath mated that hurts him. Heath lost his memory, and he doesn’t remember Will and the years they had together. Will knows it’s not Heath’s fault, but he still keeps his distance, even if that means keeping away from the only family he has.

Will and Mal crash into each other and Will immediately realizes what Mal is to him. The distance between their homes put a strain on their budding relationship, as does the reappearance of Mal’s abusive ex-boyfriend, and the ever-present danger of the new council trying to get rid of the pack.

Will they be able to find solutions to their problems or will one of them finally tear them apart?

ISBN: 9781487407469

Product Link: http://www.extasybooks.com/mal/

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Gillham Pack Series collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is also connected to the Whitedell Pride series.

Mal followed his friend to the Gillham Pack and is not the only human there. However he feels like he is not truly wanted there because he is not mated. On top of all that, his ex won’t leave him alone. Even changing his number, Paul still manages to contact him. So his best friend suggested he go visit the Whitedell Pride to get away. He just had not expected to find a mate, his mate there.

Will had been best friends with Heath for nearly their entire lives and lovers for two of those. So when Heath found his mate, Will was left out in the open. Heath had no memory of their lives in the past, so their friendship was suffering because of it.

He needed to get away for them, but going to the pride house was probably the biggest shock. It seems he has found his mate, a mate that needed him. They have dangers it would seem coming at them from all corners and he was going to keep his mate safe.

I would definitely recommend reading this book.

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥3 Hearts

Blurb: Rodney is over his head in gambling debts when the sharks come after him—to pay them off, he’ll make a deal that will change his life forever.

Panda shifter Rodney is in trouble. His gambling debts are well over what he can ever hope to pay off, and now the sharks are after him. They find him one night and Rodney thinks he’s in for a beating, but instead they trade him to Lady Leo, who owns an exclusive kink club. Kinky Kritters isn’t for the faint of heart, and Rodney is definitely out of his element. He has no idea how to be submissive, and he’s frightened, especially when his hands are tied behind his back, he’s blindfolded, and he’s put up for auction.

Mordechai is a panther who’s been with plenty of shifters, but never a panda. He has money to burn and a curiosity about Rodney that won’t be easily satisfied. One night isn’t going to cut it, though. Not when he’s thinking about Rodney even when he’s not at the club.

What started as simple curiosity might be able to lead to far more, if only this cat is willing to take a chance on love with a panda.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  When I first started reading this story, I noticed that it was a bit longer then some of the other series that these two authors had out.  Which gave me confidence in what this story will be like.  However I must admit though that it didn’t pan out the way I had thought it would.  It came off very rushed, like the authors were just trying to get pieces wrote to turn in.  There wasn’t a lot of meat to it, and not a lot of detail either.  I am afraid that I am not really sure what to expect from the next book.

Rodney has gotten himself into a bit of trouble and now his ass was in even more trouble. He should have never started gambling, because now he owed the sharks. Now the sharks had come for him, but he had not expected to be sold off to a sex club. He had not expected the sexy panther to purchase him. It would seem Mordechai wants him for more than just a rump of fun.

I have to say that the title and series name was what caught my attention. I must admit though that the story just didn’t come together like it should have. There is some mild BDSM play but really it was just being tied up and being ordered around. There was no actual build up and the story just moved to fast to make it anything more than just a quick and dull read. It just didn’t developed the way it should have, and that was a big disappointment.

The story had pretty good potential but it was just basic filler and a hit in spots. There was just no meat to it. I had thought that maybe after these two authors having done a few series together, that their work would grow, but so far I am not seeing it. I was disappointed in this story, it had a great start but that was all.

I guess we will see what the next book will be like.
